Honey paradise – The Gallery and Museum Perger 1757
In Slovenj Gradec you can meet the one and only European gingerbread and candle maker, whose tradition dates back to 1757. The Perger family have been master makers of a broad range of honey and honeycomb products since 1757, when it yielded the first generation of gingerbread and candle makers. Vast technological knowledge and family secrets have been passed down from generation to generation.
